May 31st Swing Watch List
$BIOS – This has been on our watch list before, but always fails to go. Still a good setup either way. Long entry is over 2.75, stop 2. 260. Target is 2.90 and then 3.00. Tight ATR here means you have to monitor it!
$CBAY – A big, speculative bull flag here. Long entry is over 2.50, stop 2.35. Room is to 2.80-2.90, short term.
$SRNE – Testing a big resistance spot on decent relative volume. Long entry is over 6.71, stop 6.50. Room here is to 7.20 and 7.80.
$TECH – Not showing signs of reversal just yet, but has hit my radar. Will wait for better short setup.
